What do you and your kids call "it"?

My daughter just got potty trained in the past few months and when we were teaching her to wipe we didn't know what to call it....well she came up with it's name on her own! She calls it her "front heiney"..... I think it's cute what little kids come up with!

  • My boys call their penis a OOPEYDOOP, and I have a girl but we haven't come up with a name for that. We're thinking "muffin"?

  • Vagina, although it comes out sounding more like "badora". In this house we only use real terminology, well sort of. We don't call it a vulva haha. No one is allowed to teach her a *pet name* for it. There are too many instances where children don't know the real word, get molested, and can't tell someone what's going on. I know a teacher who had this happen to her and it was months before anyone realized the girl was being molested by her father. It was sad.

  • I always told my girls the real names for their parts, but my middle daughter called hers her "front butt", she could never remember vulva.

  • My son is 2 and calls it his penis. We don't want nicknames for it. Before he could really say penis, he called it his peepee and when he had to go number one just just said pee.

  • Boy, we use the proper word but he can't pronounce it and says "pee pee thing" which is accurate enough for now. Girls are harder. I want to say vagina but there is a lot in that area, if she says her vagina hurts or itches, we kind of need to know if it's internal, external-- maybe a UTI? I didn't even know the vagina was separate from the urine opening till I was 11, so separate words would make that clear.

  • My son in his twenties now, he'd just love to know I'm chatting him up, his uncle knew he loved hulk hogan way back when. Well he got my son to poop in potty by calling it hulk hogan and teaching my son to flex his arms and push it out!!! So my son used to just say hulk hogan when he had to go we knew what he meant.

  • my DD is only 2 1/2 and her language isn't good enough to get her to use proper terminology yet. When she gets bigger we will explain the proper words for everything....but for now "front heiney" is good enough for me!
